Smulders has awarded a major contract to Granada Material Handling Ltd (GMH) to design, manufacture, deliver and commission 67 davit crane units for the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm.
One ‘Python’ crane unit will be fitted to each of the 67 transition piece platforms.
Mark Sidwell, director of Granada Material Handling Ltd, added: “We are extremely pleased to have been awarded another prestigious UK wind farm project. Securing this contract has been a real team effort by the Granada Renewable product and service division.
“The Dudgeon contract is not only great news for Granada but also for our UK based supply chain. Granada has ambitious plans for this market sector and having supplied over 500 offshore davits is the UK’s leading offshore wind farm davit crane supplier.”
At the end of last month, (GMH) won a contract by Sembmarine for the delivery of two davit crane units for Siemens’ Transmission and Distribution Platform at the Dudgeon offshore wind farm.
